I told myself not to start on a negative foot...but there was a dog in the kitchen. I inquired about their allowing if dogs and told it was the chef/owner's friends dog. That doesn't make it ok for me. Dogs are NOT allowable on any kitchen area. With that being said, our food was great. We started with the ham... More

We stopped in after visiting a local vineyard for dinner one evening. They're on OpenTable, so it was easy for us to make reservations and get a spot. This was our first time there, we were trying it with friends, on their recommendation. Upon first walking in we were amazed by the beauty, the very tall ceilings and how nicely... More

Very special place , in a former bank . Delicious food . The ambiance is chic and you can have a conversation because of great acoustics and the disposition of the tables allow it

We try to go here whenever we visit Virginia. The chef has an outstanding flair for flavor fusion. This time we tried the oysters Rockefeller. They were perfect with a touch of apple smoked bacon and Licorice liquor. The rosemary cream combined with fresh lobster and shrimp over angel hair was lick the plate superb. The filet with bernaise was... More

We were in from out of the area to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant has beautiful architecture. We were in a private room and the waiter was tremendous. Overall it was a great experience, but it did take a while for the food to arrive. I'm not sure if this is typical or simply because our group was large. I... More

We happened upon this restaurant while driving through Leesburg Virginia. From the time we were greeted at the door to the time that we left our service was wonderful! The menu offered several different options, that night the specialties all included some type of seafood. We didn't take advantage of anything because we have a seafood allergy in our family....

Went here on New Years Eve. Did not know what to expect but was surprised by the unusual layout and design of the restaurant. Got lucky to be seated on the second floor by the piano(which was not used). There was a live band playing some quiet music(romantic I would say) and which did a great job. The downside of... More

We recently visited Lightfoot for dinner again, this time to ring out 2016. The prix fixe dinner menu, based largely on the standard dinner menu, provided more excellent choices than we could fit into a single dinner. All of Chef Ingrid's selections that we had were excellent, including the French onion soup, baked oysters, pork shank, rack of lamb (with... More

Lightfoot provides, time and again, great service, value, food and ambiance. Its a great place for date night or an evening out with friends. Food and drinks are consistently great.
